Will They Ever Learn?
Stuck in a pre-Katrina mind set, Jimbo and his Republican comrades are short changing FEMA. Here's what Jimbo voted against on Thursday:
- $50 million for FEMA to increase election activities.
- $1.2 billion for among other things, funding the Coast Guard's hurricane response and "to increase funding for 'Preparedness, Mitigation, Response and Recovery' of FEMA". It failed by 2 votes.
- $465 billion for "Flood Control and Coastal Emergencies".
